Trained as a dancer, artist Alexandra Pirici fuses choreography, performance, and visual arts across her practice. In many of her artworks, she uses enactment and embodiment as strategies to reimagine historical events, re-mediate internet memes and digital images, and perform sculptural additions to public monuments.For this performance, Pirici invites a group of performers to build a moving, porous threshold at the gate that separates the eastern and western Rail Yards. For the work, Pirici creates an embodied and flexible architectural "boundary" from the performers' bodies, but one that can be negotiated and transformed.The performers' movements reference historical and aesthetic thresholds both real and imagined, with different functions, such as a barricade from the Paris Commune and the fictional borders built by war and conflict in Francisco Goya's iconic "Disasters of War" prints. As the performers' bodies and movements shift, passersby will be able to pass through, but not without having to encounter the performers in one way or another.

Choreographer Jacqulyn Buglisi presents "9/11 Table of Silence Project." She was inspired to create the piece by Italian visual artist Rossella Vasta's sculptural installation of 100 ceramic plates that represent a banquet table uniting humanity. Given the unrelenting and tragic acts of terror and violence that continue in the world, "9/11 Table of Silence" remains as relevant and timely today as when it was first performed seven years ago.
